Par Lance

Par Lance is where I come to talk with my friends, mainly to discuss books. 

Par can mean at face value,and Lance is just me.


From the Oxford English Dictionary:

noun [mass noun] a particular way of speaking or using words, especially a way common to those with a particular job or interest: dated terms that were once in common parlance | medical parlance.

Twisted Dreams - Bonnie Bliss This was an OK little story, which I enjoyed. There is a very loose connection to the story of The Wizard of Oz, but Dorothy's encounters with Glinda, The Witch of the North, are one helluva lot sexier than anything in the original! There are a few dwarves thrown into the mix for good measure.

Dorothy Gale, or D.G. as she is more commonly known, works in a cafe in Kansas, and dreams of saving up to escape to a better life some day. She is an orphan, living with her aunt and uncle on a farm. There are three hunky brothers working on the farm, who make D.G.'s juices flow like a river. She retires to her bedroom to dream and to play [with herself].

But what a dream she has! You'll have to read this book to find out more.

All I'll say to you is this: watch out for those outrageous heels on the witch's shoes!

It's a short story, so to say much more would be to stray into spoiler-land. Read it and enjoy.
